Offroad bumpers?

Who makes decent fitting offroad bumpers that are not priced to the stars? My stocker got backed into and i may go the heavy duty route to help with that in the future!

You kinda get what you pay for. I'm sure you have done some shopping and know that good quality bumpers are pricey...never mind shipping, paint if you want etc. I built my own cause I didn't want to pay that kind of money.

Mostly what you're paying for is fit, finish and design with the bumpers. You can easily make your own bumpers BUT it'll probably be pretty obvious you made your own.

It's easy to weld a good bead and to get your own bumper powdercoated. It is NOT easy to design your bumper to actually look good though when you make it yourself. Be honest, most home made bumpers that you see look pretty rough and don't have much styling. If you're not worried about that stuff make your own. If you do care about making your 6.4 look good, I'd pony up the $ and get one of the manufactured bumpers.

There aren't really any "economy" bumpers out there, especially for the newer trucks.

I like the smittybilt m1 bumper.... There is also a kit you can buy with precut materials that looks pretty good also. front and rear bumper parts are like 800 or so

Never seen those ones before . I like them and you can chose colors. Price is very reasonable too

Fusion makes a nice looking bumper at a decent price.
